It’s not like there’s that many five part single reels in the world that there’s not room for another….

This came out of a disagreement or struggle, and I’m not sure who came out the better, an alternate name from this is "The Shight Fiddle" - the pun was intended…

I love the tune! It’s a gorgeous swingy tune as it is ‘c’, but I can’t help wanting to go up again at the beginning of the last part, so that the first 2 bars of the last part go:

|:gede ~g3b|~a3b agea|…

But then I suppose it defeats the point of the last part which is to rise up from the bottom in a big swell. Nevertheless, I still feel a lift after the end of that low 4th part to take it to the end of the tune…

Hmmmm? - the gamma rays are getting through and affecting things again… I’ll give your idea a spin. It may take some getting used to before I can know what I think… So, you’re saying - put the dénouement on the first page of the fifth and final chapter instead of up to it reaching that peak a few pages on?

"- instead of ‘leading’ up to it -"
Damn gamma radiation…

Grumbling lows ~ ;-)

I’d forgotten to say, for those instruments capable, the 4th part can also dip down ~
